is it important to fly to copenhagen not once by twice for the a global warming conference in the middle of a blizzard. i'm not saying that to be snarky so much as i'm asking the question. why aren't we listening to people with they say they are starving for jobs. they are looking for economic rebound. why don't we look at the 16 million plus women who currently own all or part of a small business and think of the untold millions of other american women who would love to harness their spirit and create a nest egg end flexibility and ownership for their small businesses. why can't be allow them just to flourish rather than trying to suffocate them from the beginning? and so i want to read some of these numbers to you. i'm looking at over 30 cross tabs right here. and we've compiled this from a number of national and publicly released polls so that the sample size is taken from over 3,000 people in the each of the 3-month periods between january '09 and january of 2010. over a full year now. president obama approval ratings have designed among every single group with the exception of afric
